Cool

You could also make boxes with

this page is......
(part of) manual
tutorial
best practice

And put it in the proper catogery, like the wikigroup, I do not know by heart which catagory I made up.

Sorry, what do you mean? Is this for the "this page is" bit?

You should also have an option in your version tables. Not working / not supported?

I see when you are using the colouring in this draft page you use htmlcodes
What if a newbie will update this page, he has to have reference how to use which colour. What if everything was N/A and he discovered it works in 1004. How does he know which colour of green he should use?

This is why templates come in handy, and particularly, template parameters. ;)

Or maybe just a small image on the top right of each document?
This way, the message is there, but doesn't interfere with the article itself.


Something like this? The icons could/should be a bit little smaller:

Example 1

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the
1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to
make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but
also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.
It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets
containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing
software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.





Example 3
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.
Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the
1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to
make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but

I am sure the wikigroup manager will be able to read some documentation about the MediaWiki  ;D

I am trying to bone up on MediaWiki stuff as well, that's how the collapsible contents are going to work I think.

Ok let's finalise this task.

The box 10.04 / 8.10 / 7.10 is very nice and we could use that straight away.
You can leave comments how to use the box in the wiki code when people edit the page.
So that there will be uniformity.
Which status will we have?
 
Applicable = works for current version
N/A = doesn't work for current version ( I would prefer that one to be red)
and unknown.
We also need maybe one that it works but you need e.g. a hack.

The box with short summary is also nice idea, but what if it is information AND an instruction?
I still agree that we should keep "this page is a hack'.

The third box can be implemented straight away.
Also all pages with review should be in the catagory group wikiworkgroup?

I agree on the colours for the version info, will change that shortly.

Regarding the page type, I see no reason why both can't be displayed as per the example. Doesn't make sense to split pages up just for the sake of it - if there is RELEVANT background information to an instruction, or vice versa, then fine, just have both.
